It’s been almost 10 years since Chris Connelly, he of Ministry, Revolting Cocks, The Damage Manual (the list goes on), made an interesting observation about being in a band.
Over at artinterviews.com, Vittorio Carli interviewed Connelly about his long career in the underground music scene. Excerpt:
Carli: Did power politics or drug and alcohol problems play any role in the dissolution of RevCo [Revolting Cocks] or Ministry?
Connelly: Well it always does. In a band you are looking at four or five people working together, and that can be difficult. The drug part can be difficult too, but nothing out of the ordinary. You are going to have to make compromises or you have to leave.
So, band people, what’s your reaction to that? Feel free to comment and answer the poll.
